Like Columbus in the olden days.
We must gather all our courage;
Sail our ship out on the open sea.
Cast away our fears and all the years
will come and go
And take us up— always up.

No two moments the same:
Each moment a small lifetime—
a chance to build,
a chance to grow.
Each lifetime a unique collection of nionients-
to be treasured,
to be kept and savored.

On July 18, Dr. Pope A. Duncan became Stetson University's seventh president.

Coach Gary Deckert had posi-
tive thoughts for his relatively
young team. He said, "A little
more experience promises a good
team. I'm pleased with vi'hat
we've done. We have an excellent
organization to work with."
"Injuries were a factor this
year. In addition to game injuries,
we've been hindered by a car ac-
cident and a shark bite incident."
Next year Coach Deckert will
look to returning men Sal Sanc-
hez, Mark Oppenheim, Ed Fitz-
gerald, Derek Maul, and Virgil
Shepherd to compliment for de-
parting seniors Phil Flournoy,

How could they lose under someone like Coach
Jim Bambrick? Well, they did, but through no fault
of his. Stetson's women's basketball team lost more
than they won, but being only three years old, they
are still more or less in the building stages. How-
ever, even with a lack of an adequate number of
players, this season was a great improvement over
the past two years, ending with a record of 11-14.
Most of the team members will be returning next
year and look forward to great successes.

Stetson came in second in the exciting 1977-78
Hatter Classic. In two nights of top basketball. Stet-
son defeated Arkansas, but lost to New Orleans,
who left Deland as champions of the doubleheader.
Left is Dave Purdue with the trophy for second
place. Outstanding players named were Kurt For-
rester and Mel Daniels (no surprise.)
At halftime the second night, the 1978-79 Miss
Hatter was announced. Standing with Dr. Pope
Duncan below are runner-up Diane Tobin, 1977-78
Miss Hatter Barb Kvinge, pageant chairman Barb
Knipper, and the new Miss Hatter Leslie Howell.
The Homecoming basketball game was an ex-
citing culmination to a weekend of activities.
Stetson had suffered a defeat at the hands of the
University of South Florida's Bulldogs earlier in
the season; this time it was USF's turn to suffer.
The Hatters played an excellent game and came
out with a decisive victory over USE, much to
the pleasure of a packed gymnasium of students
The volleyball team under Coach Sharon Shepherd
suffered a rather discouraging season this year. Playing
a tough schedule, they still managed a number of wins
and learned much that will be valuable in the future.
With most of the team returning next year, they look
forward to a more exciting and rewarding season next
With a new coach, new uniforms and some new
stimts, the cheerleaders seemed to pick up new enthu-
siasm and spirit to help cheer the Hatters to a winning
season. Under their coach Jan Carey and captain Col-
leen Mahoney their liveliness inspired students and
fans alike, and will no doubt carry into next year.

Having several very successful seasons behind
them, and under the guidance of coach Sandy
Bean, the women's tennis team was destined for
another big year. They placed first in the re-
gional tournament and were highly favored to
win the state championship for small colleges.
There was just no competition for top players

showed great improvement over the past few years. They
played a tough season, but had the stuff to take both singles
and doubles, ending with an excellent record and looking for-
ward to an even better season next Spring.

With the success of past years and talents of several
returning players, the golf team looked forward to
nothing less than an excellent season. In practice out
at Southridge, they showed off the stuff necessary to
be an impressive competitor. Coach Weickel has led

and provide the kind of advice and suggestions
needed. So . . . there they go, and . . . Four!!

It all began twenty-three years ago when a group of
students decided to form a committee to raise money
for needy institutions. They began collecting pennies
and dimes from their fellow students. In return, the
peers were given a green feather to symbolize thanks.
As a result the name "Greenfeather" was established,
and the tradition returns year after year.
Stetson's 58th annual Homecoming was high-
lighted by a dinner with Max Cleland, a sell-out
concert featuring comedian Steve Martin, and a
Hatter basketball victory.
Approximately 600 alumni attended the alumni
dinner which featured guest speaker Max Cleland.
A graduate of Stetson, Cleland is the administrator
of the Veterans Administrations.
An estimated 4,900 people turned out for the
Saturday afternoon concert with Steve Martin.
Martin is well-known for such gags as the arrow-
through-the-head, the nose and glasses, "Fun Bal-
loon Animals", and, of course, his ever-popular
statement— "Excuuuuuuusse Me!"
The final big event of the weekend was the bas-
ketball game. The largest crowd of the season
jammed into the Edmunds Center on Saturday
night to watch Stetson's 86-74 Homecoming vic-
tory over the University of South Florida.
Max Cleland, Mrs. Duncan, Dr. Duncan
Representatives of about 200 colleges, iiniversities, and
learned societies joined more than 100 members of the
faculty and staff of Stetson University in the academic
processional which preceded the formal inauguration of
Dr. Pope Alexander Duncan as the seventh president of
Florida's oldest institution of higher learning.
The ceremony was grounded in ancient academic tra-
dition. The representatives of the universities filled in,
led by the man from the oldest in the nation— Harvard.
Dr. Duncan came last in the procession behind the Stet-
son mace bearer. Dr. J. Ollie Edmunds, Chancellor of the
university, presided during the service, and Dr. John Pel-
ham, chairman of the board of trustees, conducted the in-
vestiture of the new president with the presentation of
the traditional symbols of office— the charter and presi-
In his inaugural remarks, the new president issued a
four-point moral and intellectual charge to the commu-
nity, to the faculty, and to the student body. He spoke of
the need in the university to produce unity in the cur-
riculum, to provide leadership through a commitment to
a set of values, to respond to the needs of the adult com-
munity, and to find ways to finance higher education in a
time of a shrinking student market and inflating costs. Dr.
Dimcan concluded his statements by saying "I am not
frightened by those who would write off the independent
college. Certainly some will fail— but not institutions with
tradition, commitment, a clear mission, qualit\', and a
constituency— and Stetson has them all."
Dr. Pope Alexander Duncan

They tell me that editor's letters in yearbooks are passe, hut I figure I de-
serve it right about now, so here I go.
First, I want to apologize to everyone, very especially the faculty and ad-
ministration, who was not adeejuately represented in this yearbook. I offer a.s
an excase only my lack of adecjuate foresight in working with college photog-
raphers (they're the same as high school photographers-they still need to be
horsewhipped once in awhile). I do sincerely hope next year will be better.
I had all kinds of dreams for the book when I came back to Stetson. Well,
the job turned out to be a little more than I thought it would be. We might
actually make it though (at this point, it is still somewhat uncertain). Anyway,
I want to give my special thanks to Sharon Parker, Charlotte Breed and Mark
Elias (who metamorphosed from a strange head in front of me in PE/201 into
a good friend), who were all a tremendous help and encouragement to me. A
special thanks also to Russell Schropp, Dr. George Borders, Jerry Fields-our
yearbook representative, and John Renauld-our Stevens Studios representa-
tive. Thanks as well to my sections editors: Florrie, Suzanne and Lynn, to
staffers Rudy, Marie, Angela, Dennis and JT, and finally to everyone who has
been so patient and cooperative and all those I don't have room to name.
It's been quite an experience; I imagine I'll be glad I did it someday. As for
now, we realize it's no award winner, but it was really fun (at times). At any
rate. Stetson, your yearbook has been rescued from the mire of apathy. It is
my fervent hope it will not be allowed to sink again. Best of luck to all future
This ... is the end of my quest. I wished to know the
meaning of things. I am the meaning. I wished to find a
warrant for being. I need no warrant for being, and no
word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and
Whatever road I take, the guiding star is within me; the
guiding star and the loadstone which point the way. They
point in but one direction. They point to me.
